How do I get my HE washer to actually soak?

I have a new-ish Kenmore HE washer (top loader with a "regular" agitator), and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to get it to soak for a long period of time. It has a soak function, and a few weeks ago I put a few things in with some oxyclean on the soak function, and when I went back a couple of hours later, the water was all gone. Today I tried a different approach. I put a few things in with oxyclean again, but this time set it to the "normal" cycle, and after it filled, I pushed the pause button, and opened the lid. We went to a friend's house for dinner, and when I came home, the washer was drained again. Sometimes I have things that just need to soak overnight, but I cannot figure out how to make my washer do that. Any ideas????
Thanks a lot!
